News-Programs

On this week’s program, RCFC will hear fellow Rotarian Bill Timpson give his first-person observations on the continuing US - Mexico border saga, where Bill recently spent a week.  While there he devoted time talking to people involved with immigration issues and spending time in court observing the Scott Warren case and his trial for “harboring” asylum seekers.

Dr. Don Jorgensen gave his second new member talk, having been a member before.  Don is a retired orthodontist (Ft. Collins and Cheyenne) and used the 4-Way Test in his practice.  Raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, he wore braces and decided to become an orthodontist.  He attended University of Nebraska and the NU Dental School on an ROTC scholarship and was stationed first at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, then Korea, then Colorado Springs.  He finished orthodontics training at LSU, returned to Lincoln in teen orthodontics, finally coming to Colorado.  His passion is service and he sees it in Rotary.  Welcome Don!
On February 12, Maurine (“Mo”) Reilly, Census 2020 Partnership Specialist for Larimer County (and a former Wisconsin Rotarian) introduced us to the many aspects of the 2020 Census.   There are 30 Partnership Specialists in Colorado.  The Constitution mandates that there be a complete census every 10 years to provide data for determining how many legislators each state is entitled to and how at least $675 Billion (some $1500/person/year) in Federal Funds are allocated.  To achieve an accurate census, they are also seeking temporary Census Workers, paying $20.50 per hour.  For more information see https://2020census.gov/en/jobs.html.
New Member Rich Fisher made three points in his New Member talk.  First, he outlined progress in the Clean Water project in Kenya.  Five schools now have clean water, and the goal is to reach 30,000 children.  Second, he urged members to support water projects.  Third, he wants everyone to vote and become involved.
Warren Wilson introduced Major Fulk who introduced Audrey Meyer, the Cadet Of the Month.   A Sophomore with a 4.0, Audrey shows great responsibility as she raises funds to support suicide awareness and prevention.  Majoring in sociology/ criminal justice, she hopes to join the FBI or enter the intelligence field.
